Fury is coming off a split decision victory against Jake Paul in February and is looking for another win to pad out his record.

Despite that fight taking top billing, it has been vastly overshadowed by the ugly lead up to the co-main event fight between Logan Paul and Dillon Danis.

The two major fights after expected to get underway anytime from 8.30am AEST.

Everything you need to know about the fights.

8.30am – Logan Paul ‘forgives’ Dillon

Danis has repeatedly targeted Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal in an ugly social media smear campaign.

But Paul had a surprising response when asked pre-fight about how he feels about his opponent’s antics.

“I reached a bit of a zen moment last night because he has been so personal and how do you not go in there wanting to murder this human being,” Paul told DAZN.

“Answer is, I forgive him. I forgive Dillon.

“I’m going to do my job, stay focused, do what I have to do. I know what I’m good at. I know my skills, I know how I’m going to beat him.

“I’m not going to be aggressive and fight with ego. I’m going to fight with skill and precision.”

Paul also showed off a nasty cut he suffered when Danis threw a microphone at him during a heated press conference and left his face bleeding.

Commentator Ariel Helwani said on DAZN: “The cut is a big thing. The guy got nailed in the head. All the pressure is on Logan Paul.”

8.15am – 17-second KO stuns undercard

There’s been a wild early knockout on the undercard. Ed Matthews came out on the attack against Swarmz and needed just 17 seconds to knock him out and win the fight.

Matthews backed him up against the ropes and sent Swarmz crashing to the canvas with a heavy right hook.
